-- does hillary clinton and the obama administration view the libya intervention as a success? how much did they view that intervention as what precipitated the set of effects afterwards? >> militarily the intervention by nato in libya was clearly judged widely as a success. it forced gadhafi out of power and it changed a state that had been among the most draconian in its practices at all levels into something that opened up hope for six and a half million people. the problem is the united states has never been very good, whether it's in afghanistan, iraq, in creating an alternative and the bol line is the united states basically walked away when it came to how do you create a new state, how do you facilitate the diverse forces, whether it's the tribal elements, more than 300 militias that had formed during that brief eight-month involvement, how do you stem the flow of weaponry and create an alternative. if you saw charlie wilson's war, at the very ending of the movie when he says i raised all this money, billions of dollars for arms to the opposition to fight off the soviets but i co
in mali and what they are doing there. is this worrying the obama administration? is there support for this? >> well, obviously the united states is providing refueling facilities for the french warplanes so, yes, the united states is playing a role already. i think there are no comfortable choices and that's one of the realities across the region today, whether it's in mali or syria, post revolution egypt and libya. the united states doesn't have a grand strategy. it's looking at each case individually. the reality is that with islamists taking over northern mali, which is larger than france, just that part of it, this then creates a greater threat throughout the region. and unfortunately the outside world dithered for way too long in trying to figure out a response and to the earlier point, the fact is the africans can't do it themselves. there's been talk for two decades about creating an africa rapid deployment force and they haven't been able to bring it together, provide training, cohesion, command and control and as a result there is no local or regional alternative. >> afri
, the obama administration has pursued the same so supposes that is predecessors, the same that inflicts damage to america's strategic position. it covers out, the obama administration today is not just presiding over his called middle east peace process. the very demise of the nice features solution to the israeli-palestinian conflict. of the obama administration intervention in libya was able to overthrow moammar gadhafi, if not incubating in libya at a significant threat to american security interests. as we detail in our book, "going to tehran," the obama administration has gone beyond and threatening the islamic republic to do something which argued even more dangerous, to discard anime engagement of the strategy for dealing with the islamic republic of iran. they're sure to reach out to the islamic republic of iran of field and therefore engagement is perhaps. the result is on president obama/the middle east balance of power has shifted further away from the united states and allies and i was at the end of the george w. bush administration. this brings me to another critically impo
she'l he'll lack. and she did play a role as the obama administration would assert in restoring the american image, but i think there will be more points of continuity than discontinuity. >> rose: how do you assess her four years? >> >> well, i think she was good at restoring the american image. i think she trafd a lot. she went to 112 countries. i think she had some success in asia. but i don't think she or the obama administration has many notable diplomatic accomplishiments. the syria problem is-- seemed. the middle east situation seems pretty much stalled out. can. >> rose: do you believe benghazi will be a cirrus law on her record? >> i think it is a flaw. but i don't think it will be a lasting flaw. it was a systemic breakdown. there was an independent review that established there was a lot of culpability of a lot of people on the sixth floor of the state department, but she was on the seventh floor, and certainly, her posture has been she accepts responsibility for what happened but not blame, and that's pret much what played out today in two hearings. she was uncharacte
change america's middle east policies. but instead the obama administration has pursued the same sorts of policies as its predecessors, the same policies that did such damage to america's strategic position. as a result, for example, the obama administration today is not just presiding over a stalled middle east peace process, it is presiding over the very demise of a two of state solution to the israeli/palestinian conflict. and while the obama administration's military intervention in libya was able to overthrow moammar gadhafi, it is now incubating in libya a senate threat to american security -- a significant threat to american security interests. and as we detail in our book, "going to tehran," the obama administration has gone beyond the bush administration in threatening the islamic republic to doing something we argue is even more dangerous, to actually discrediting engagement as a strategy for dealing with the islamic republic of iran. they've to done so by saying tht they've tried to reach out to the islamic republic of iran and failed and, therefore, engagement is perhaps a
a record number of deportations under the obama administration. record now 1.8 million people have been deported. the border is more secure than it's ever been in o'our recent history, and the fact of the matter is that something like this which deals with issues like the border, it deals with what to do with the broken legal immigration system, both sides agree that it's broken, but also deals in a humane matter with 11 million people who are here without their documents and who have been here for many years, many of them have children here, have grandchildren here and have contributed to this society and to this economy for many, many decades. this is something extremely well received. >> the politics of this, republicans as john mccain was the first to say yesterday, republicans have to deal with the facts of life here. now, ironically, if john mccain and lindsey graham and others had joined with george w. bush, this could have been done in 2007. >> right. what john mccain sort of didn't say but implied was what has changed about this issue? it's simple. november 6th, the 2012 genera
the othe obama administration announcing it will send four high tech fighter jets to egypt even though that country is in militant hands and of course hillary clinton's testimony about libya. here to run it all down for us colonel ralph peters joins us from washington. what's the headline of the hillary clinton testimony today for you. >> hillary mops floor with congressman and senators. she was as james rosen pointed out. she was prepared. she had it down. she had answers anticipatory answers ready. the congressman and senators didn't do their homework. they made speeches again as james rosen pointed out. their questions were ill focused. they went down the red herring road. they needed to ask hillary, why when it went down, if shes would was aware there was an attack, why she didn't immediate qulatly ask ask for urgent military help. they needed to ask her specifically who and when denied the request from libya for greater embassy security. they needed -- i would have asked her this question. were you asked, madam secretary, to go on the sunday talk shows before susan rice was asked
their children. >> ifill: but sparks flew when senate republicans accused the obama administration of deceiving the nation by initially suggesting the benghazi attack was something other than terrorism. senator ron johnson of wisconsin: >> we were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that. and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact... >> but could-- but, you know... >> ...and the american people could have known that within days, and they didn't know that. >> and-- with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. >> i understand. >> was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some americans? what difference, at this point, does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. now, honestly, i will do my best to answer your questions about this. but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. >> ifill: republican john mccain
success in asia. but i don't think she or the obama administration has many notable diplomatic accomplishiments. the syria problem is-- seemed. the middle east situation seems pretty much stalled out. can. >> rose: do you believe benghazi will be a cirrus law on her record? >> i think it is a flaw. but i don't think it will be a lasting flaw. it was a systemic breakdown. there was an independent review that established there was a lot of culpability of a lot of people on the sixth floor of the state department, but she was on the seventh floor, and certainly, her posture has been she accepts responsibility for what happened but not blame, and that's pret much what played out today in two hearings. she was uncharacteristically emotional in describing the death of the four americans. so i don't think it's going to be an impediment to what everybody assumes are her longer term political ambitions to run for the presidency. >> rose: what struck you about the testimony today that was noteworthy? >> well, there was very little that shed new light on the white house role. you know, th
for the keystone pipeline. he is urging the obama administration to follow suit. good morning molly. >> the state of february fen had studied an alternative route for the oil pipeline has found it can avoid environmentally sensitive area in the sand dunes in nebraska. they rebuilding the pipeline from canada to texas that would carry oil across the state. the state department would have to approve it. the governor says the alternative group would come close to an aquifer that said any spills would be localized and he would be responsible for the clean up. the pipeline would create $418 for benefits and 16.5 million in state tax revenue. the first proposal for the keystone pipeline the white house says it's waiting on an assessment on an alternative route. >> the state department is conducting its assessment as appropriate and as has been standard over the years on behalf of the federal government. i don't want to get ahead of that process. when the state department as something to move fore wad on we will obviously address that issue when it does. >>> the state department says the federal review

. the congress has not fully funded the obama administration request for embassy security, and, two, more funding for some of the governments in the region that need to be stronger to protect us. she pointed out congress has blocked funds that would have us assist the libyan government so, responsibility of security is the host government's responsibility. we rely on them. and that militia group in benghazi failed us on september 11th and 12th, so we need to reenforce the ability of these governments to protect our embassies and consulates in 275 different locations around the world. >> well, that raises a point, michael lighter, if we should be in 275 locations. we don't want to retreat from the world, but basically according to the review board that admiral mullen and pickering went through, they looked through the videos and say this host government local militia just turned tail and ran before the attack, or as the attack, was taking place. >> i think what we saw in libya was a slowness on behalf of the state department to adjust to very, very different circumstances in libya. and during the
fight over guns and gun violence, the obama administration is falling through on its promise to take its fight to the public. vice president joe biden has been on the road and on line. in congress, democrats introduced a new effort to ban 158 specific assault-style weapons and prohibit other guns from using magazines containing more than ten rounds of ammunition. those are just two of the provisions of the bill put forward by the united states senator whose own hands were bloodied by one of the most famous shooting acts in california history. cnn's chief correspondent, dana bash, was at the emotional announcement on capitol hill. >> reporter: wolf, with all the gun control measures that president obama provided this one, this assault-style ban is one of the toughest to get through congress. her determination comes from a very public tragedy four decades ago. for diane feinstein, it is personal. >> well, i became mayor as a product of assassination. both mayor masconey and supervisor have been shot and killed. >> reporter: the death of her colleagues, including harvey milk, the first open

happened in libya was that the obama administration didn't want us to be heavily armed there because we were trying to develop a relationship and they wanted to look as though we were, you know, on friendlier > africa. let's get into that. africa. what's the big picture? >> benghazi did not happen in a vacuum. the arab revolutions have scrambled power dynamics and shattered security forces across the region. instability in mali has created an expanding safe haven for terrorists who look to expand their influence and plot further attacks of the kind we saw just last week in algeria. >> what happened last week in algeria, north africa, was the murder of at least 37 hostages, including three americans at the militants attack a natural gas plant in the eastern part of the country. the al-qaida splinter group called the signers with blood brigade claimed responsibility. question is the volatility in north africa an outcome of the arab spring, or does it predate the arab spring? patrick. >> john, some of it predates the arab spring, but what this shows, and what the hillary thing was about, t
he biggest question facing the obama administration. >> i want to take one for the team and ask a big question. did the president know she was lip syncing and does he care? >> i have not had the discussion with him. i don't know that i understand the variety and contradictory reports on the matter and i would refer you to j-sick or pick. >> jennifer: that refers to the committees that organize the inauguration. bill press did follow up with a more pointed question, and jay carney danced around it and similar questions from other reporters. unfortunately we may never know what happened on that stage with beyonce and whether she lip synced. check us out on line at current.com/thewarroom website. thanks so you all joining us here in "the war room." >> cenk: welcome to "the young turks." we have a great show ahead for you tonight. secretary of state hillary clinton went up the hill and the republicans were aggressive and hot style. get a look. >> had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables fr
dollars that were given away as part of the obama administration's stimulus plan, money that the government promised would transform our rail system. it was a very ambitious plan, no doubt about it, when it was first announced. the president, vice president, ray lahood, all of the white house announcing a $13 billion plan to bring high-speed rail to america. listen. >> imagine whisking through towns at speeds over 100 miles an hour. walking only a few steps to public transportation. and ending up just blocks from your destination. imagine what a great project that would be to rebuild america. >> that was the idea. sounded great. bullet trains literally whisking passengers between american cities. the president outlining his plan to make it all happen. well, $8 billion in stimulus money to start and $1 billion a year thereafter to match local projects. keeping them honest now. it is now three years later and we can't find any high-speed rail that's actually been built. certainly not on this farmland in california, an area tapped as a high-speed train route. you'll see fie

end of the campaign and republicans keep making accusations against the obama administration, they tried to paint a positive picture of the decimation of al qaeda for political reasons rather than sharing the specific information that they had. on one of those five sunday talk shows you were filling in and you had susan rice appear before your show. do you remember how she responded? this was five days after the attack in benghazi. >> well, first of all, i remember we were all requesting secretary of state hillary clinton because it was under her purview just in terms of booking but that's not who the white house put out. the white house controls they. they control this process of sunday shows and guests with an iron hand. >> were you surprised when susan rice was the designee? >> yes, because as president obama said later, she really had nothing to do with security decisions in benghazi or libya at large. she's the ambassador to the united nations. i didn't know what she was doing there other than that she was a high level and came armed at that point that this was not the r
immediately. the terror threat in north africa is a growing concern for the obama administration. one that is opening up an incredibly divisive debate about what the united states should do. pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is "outfront." hillary clinton says it's risky to ignore this rising threat. >> benghazi did not happen in a vacuum. instability in mali has created an expanding safe haven for terrorists. >> reporter: and the defense secretary sounds like a man ready to go on offense. >> we've got to go after al qaeda, wherever the hell they're at. and yes, in mali if necessary. >> reporter: but the white house is not embracing the same tough talk. >> we are working with france and support their effort in mali, and believe that the goal of preventing terrorists' safe haven is an important one. >> reporter: in public, the administration swings from forceful to tentative. a senior u.s. official said the defense secretary's tough talk is classic panetta. "he's letting the french know we've got their back in the offensive against al qaeda." u.s. military planes recently started l
-style push to get those stiff gun measures passed, that you just talked about. the obama administration has sort of taken this tactic in the past, during the payroll tax cut fight, during the student loan fight, really circumventing congress and trying to build a ground swell of support among the people, to pressure congress to get what it wants to get done passed. so in this case, that is the stiffer gun law. so you're going to see vice president biden out today, holding that roundtable, talking about gun legislation. he'll be joined by his cabinet secretaries as well as a democratic senator, tim kaine, to really try to talk to the people about why he thinks this for gun legislation is a good idea. but, of course, as you just mapped out, there is a lot of opposition to this, particularly in states like virginia. so they're hoping to get moderates on their side, so that when this really does go to a fight, they will have the votes in the end. senior administration officials tell me, privately, they think that there is a lot of support for universal background checks and for limiting high-ca
